Boyd Holbrook is an American model turned actor who has earned a fair amount of recognition for his involvement in projects such as Logan and Narcos. The latest news is that he will be writing a new project that he will be starring in as well, which represents a new sort of challenge for him. Here are five things that you may or may not have known about Boyd Holbrook:
Born in Prestonburg, KY
Holbrook was born in a place called Prestonburg that can be found in the state of Kentucky. It is considered to be a city, but it should be noted that its population measures not much more than 3,000 people in the present. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Prestonburg was once part of the land owned by the wife of a man named Col. John Preston, who ran it on her behalf.
Discovered in a Theatre
Regardless, Holbrook was discovered while he was at the Jenny Wiley Theatre in the state of Kentucky. However, he wasn’t one of the people performing on the theatre stage. Instead, he was working as a carpenter at the time when he was discovered. As a result of the discovery, Holbrook signed on with Elite Models in 2001, which led to his career as a fashion model as well as his subsequent career as an actor.
Does a Wide Range of Art
A lot of people will recognize Holbrook because of his acting in recent times. However, it is interesting to note that he has been involved with a wide range of other artistic pursuits as well. For example, Holbrook has released a number of poems. Furthermore, he is a photographer who has worked with the well-known photographer David Armstrong. Finally, Holbrook is even a sculptor who has had the chance to present his sculptures at an art show in New York City.
Played Donald Pierce in Logan
So far, Holbrook has appeared in a number of movies as well as a number of TV shows. However, most people who recognize him will have recognized him because of his role as Donald Pierce on Logan, which was one of the best-received superhero movies to have been created so far. For those who are unfamiliar with the character, Holbrook played the character who was responsible for the pursuit of the titular character as well as the mutant children that the titular character is helping to escape to Canada.
Will Be Doing The Thirst
Recently, it was announced that Holbrook will be teaming up with Fox to make a new project called The Thirst. Like the name suggests, the project will be set in a future world in which potable water has become a very scarce commodity, which is a rather frightening scenario, not least because it can sound a little bit too plausible to a lot of people on the planet. Regardless, Holbrook will be responsible for not just starring in the project but also for writing it, so it will be interesting to see how he performs in this new role of his.
